Small venue but more personal for it. Great entertainment for everyone and excellent magic. Couldn't work out how the 'magic' was done - had to be seen to be believed. Audience participation was excellent too, and funny without anyone being embarrassed.

Absolutely we use the challenge 25 scheme to gauge if guests are 18 and over, so if you look under 25 bring ID. Hope that clears up your question.
